    These matches are great, I haven't had a chance to see if they are waterproof but they work good. Their a great addition to 72 hr kits or just to go camping with.

    We live in a humid climate year round. Having waterproof matches on hand gives us peace of mind that we can start a campfire, grill or light candles and kerosene lamps. Several packs of these matches are in each of our bug out bags as well.

    Most people think that regular matches are fine, but go dunk yours in water and dry them, see if they work, they won't. These ones will work when it's wet out, just make sure you have good dry tinder too, otherwise there's no point!

    When these waterproof matches arrived, we immediately put a box in our new Kelly Kettle bundle kit! The rest are stored with our other fire starting materials. It's comforting to know we'll be able to get a warm fire going in any emergency situation, regardless of the weather! Highly recommend~~Minimal investment for maximum peace of mind!

    Now no matches are 100% waterproof but these are pretty darn close. If they do get wet, spread them out on a paper towel to dry. These MUST be in any/all 72-hours kits.

    Honestly,I bought these matches as a filler to get the free 100 dollar shipping discount because i was a little short of a 100 dollar order. But they have came in real handy .These fit in your car or camping equipment or just about anywere . They work great (remember to support the head of the match when stricking so you wont break it off) .

    I bought these as well as the higher quality UCO matches from amazon.com to test. The box that holds these matches easily came apart - luckily I bought a container. I ran the match over water and sure enough, it lit when struck. The problem with these is the match stick easily breaks when lit. It's easily visible that the grade of wood was not strong. I tried striking multiple matches most broke. The UCO matches I bought on Amazon were cheaper, longer, more durable, windproof and had 15 second burn time so if Ready Store can sell something similar, I'd def buy.

        There are a lot of tutorials out there on how to start a fire. However, many of them don’t take into account the area or climate that you’ll be in. Starting a fire in an emergency isn’t always going to be convenient and you might not find the best tools if you haven’t prepared. So, we ...

Benefits & Description

Waterproof | 50 Count | High Utility Must Have

Don’t stress about emergencies
Waterproof matches are essential to your emergency supplies. Having a box gives you peace of mind knowing you can have light and heat no matter what disaster has come your way. Take care of yourself and your family
Materials are non-perishable and will wait until you really need to use them. A must-have emergency staple
It is a good idea to have matches on hand for a wide variety of different uses, add to that the fact they are waterproof makes these a necessity. Imagine living through an earthquake so severe that it leaves your home or neighborhood in shambles. Or imagine a family camping trip that started out calm, but turned into a strong, wet storm, leaving all of your supplies soaked before finally blowing over. Both of these situations are scary enough on their own, but imagine having to find the way to your family members through all of the scattered rubble in the dark, or being unable to dry out and warm up because your matches are now too wet to light a simple candle.

Don’t let the small price on this box of 50 waterproof matches fool you into disregarding its importance. Emergencies both large and small happen and keeping a few boxes of waterproof matches on hand can be the difference between an evening with your family cold and shivering in the dark, or being warmed by the light and heat of a fire. Disasters come quickly and often without warning leaving devastation in their wake. Help your family feel as safe as possible by preparing now with basic survival supplies from The Ready Store so if that disaster strikes, your family will be both ready and safe.
